“Hello Glastonbury, nice to meet you,” Mercer told the crowd as they kicked off the set that was low on banter, as Danger Mouse and the rest of the group swapped instruments between songs, leaving The Shins man on vocals and guitar.
The group also included ‘Insane Lullaby’ from the ‘Dark Night Of The Soul’ album, with Mercer paying tribute to the late Mark Linkous, who dreamed up the project with Danger Mouse.
“Brian [Burton, Danger Mouse] and I wrote this next song with our good friend Mark Linkous,” he explained, after which they covered The Miracles‘ ‘You Really Got A Hold On Me’.
“Thanks guys, it’s been fun,” the singer told the crowd as they wrapped the set up. “It’s been our first time!”
